How to Do an LPN to BSN in Wisconsin

Getting into a Wisconsin LPN to BSN program requires current LPN licensure, good grades during LPN training, and employer references—volunteer work experience is also an asset. The program takes three years of intensive study and is only for dedicated students—critical thinking skills are put into use as students learn about advanced assessment, treatment, and management practices, while also choosing from an array of electives to focus on special topics in nursing like populations, public sector health issues, legal issues in health care and much, much more. And when the three years are finished and nurses are ready to re-enter the work force with a new standing in the career ladder, they take the $200 NLCEX-RN via Pearson Vue . Close to 90 percent of students pass the test and those who don’t may try again within two months.
